Yeah, they’re really that good.
Plus, they’re cheap and easy – what more can a gal ask for?
A lover of anything battered and fried is so unkind to my waistline, therefore I’m always in search of the ‘skinny’ alternative. So here’s a baked onion ring recipe that has received all kinds of accolades from my kitchen consumers.
One large onion
Bread crumbs (to make gluten-free as I did, use Corn Flake crumbs)
1/2 cup flour (I used gluten-free) with salt and pepper to taste
Wax paper to prevent mixture sticking to cupboard (I learned this step the hard way – I am NO genius in the kitchen)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
On a sheet of wax paper, place the flour mixture on one side and a pile of bread crumbs on the other.
Place the egg substitute in a bowl.
I’m such a kitchen diva that I use utensils when I smother and cover the onion rings. After all, my nails are jewels, not tools (I work hard on those Mani Monday posts dammit!).
Place rings on baking sheet and put in the oven for about 10 minutes. Flip the onions and bake another 5. Serve immediately.
My Skinny Os have about 75 calories per serving. But if you eat the entire batch (like I often do – I can’t help myself!), you can avoid feeling too guilty with a grand total of 240 calories vs. the 700+ for the fried version.
O-O-OH so delish!
